Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales (Deprecated) is a set of interconnected, modular Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and services designed to both transform and enable your core customers, employees, and business activities. For more information, see https://dynamics.microsoft.com/en-us/sales/overview/.

The first iteration of this connection type has been deprecated.  Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales (Deprecated) connections should be rebuilt using  Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales connections in the Designer Cloud application . The documentation on this page reflects Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales connections.

Early Preview connection: This connection is in early preview. It is read-only and available only in SaaS product editions. For more information on early previews, see Early Preview Connection Types.

Limitations and Requirements

NOTE: During normal selection or import of an entire table, you may encounter an error indicating a problem with a specific column. Since some tables require filtering based on a particular column, data from them can only be ingested using custom SQL statements. In this case, the problematic column can be used as a filter in the WHERE clause of a custom SQL statement to ingest the table.

  • For more information, please consult the CData driver documentation for the specific table.
  • For more information on using custom SQL, see Create Dataset with SQL.

NOTE: For filtering date columns, this connection type supports a set of literal functions on dates. You can use these to reduce the volume of data extracted from the database using a custom SQL query. For more information, see the pg_dateliteralfunctions.htm page in the driver documentation for this connection type.
